In collaboration with Morocco Founation, Chaouia association organizes for the school year 2013-2014, a collection of new and used bikes in favor of school children from needy families in LAKHLAIF village, (region Settat / Khouribga )
1 Child + a Bike = 1 future
Offering a bike means giving a transport locomotion that is vital for everyday life, practical and cheap to maintain.
This bike is going to help children to make their way to school more quickly, and will allow them believe in their future.
Goal: Funding at least 20 bikes
A child’s education is not just a matter of parents and teachers; it is for the whole community.
Thanks to funds in its disposition, Chaouia association has often invited volunteers to participate in operations to support LAKHLAIF village and its region like:
– A medical caravan for poor people in rural towns
– Drilling a well at school LAKHLAIF
– Construction of a mosque at the village/ Douar LAKHLAIF
Today, the association is appealing you to help these children to get to school in best conditions.
In fact, a small local study has allowed the identification of an important number of children that quitted school because of means and long distances to trip to arrive to school.
Distances between children’s residence and their schools are too large, in regard of different tasks they have to perform; thus, the school is often relegated to second plan. Those big distances to get to school are the cause behind a lot of school dropouts.
When you increase the mobility of students, they will easily get to school. These bikes will then be used to help them maintain school, and will assure the completion of an education of quality.
Thanks to your donations and to these bikes of which children will take the greatest care, their school doors will come closer, and their dream of a better future as well.
